“The storm packs a potentially pivotal political moment,” for Perdue, it said. And had this:
“She shines in a battle, and this is going to be a battle. Her mother’s name was Irene, so she’s saying she’s taking this personally,” said an aide to the governor who agreed to speak on the condition of anonymity to candidly discuss the politics surrounding the storm.
I’m reminded of my days with Governor Hunt – and especially one publicity-seeking emergency official (who shall remain nameless) of whom we joked: “The most dangerous place to be in a storm is between him and a TV camera.”
Here’s my question for Governor Perdue: What’s with her pronunciation of the word hurricane? She says, “hurra-kin.” I thought it was “hurra-CANE.”
